Storytellers has been the home of Australian songwriting at Tamworth Country Music Festival since 2013 - now we have a new base in Melbourne!
For session 2: Gareth Leach
Hailing from Echuca, Gareth Leach draws inspiration from a spectrum as wide as Willie Nelson to Keith Urban, Jimmy Eat World to Chris Stapleton, and beyond, blending Alt Country and Americana sensibilities with the introspective and reflective lyrical concepts of his Outlaw heroes.
An established songwriter and musician prior to his solo career he wrote, produced and engineered for his bands Strathmore and Bateman. As a music producer, he has also written for film and has collaborated with musicians from the country, folk, punk and pop industry to refine, develop and realise the ideas of the songwriter.
With the release of his debut EP in 2016, 2017 was a year of touring and new music, with 2018 marking his return with a full-length album, Death & Taxes, which was released in mid-September debuting at #3 on the iTunes Country Charts.
